Clements Sentenced

A Wiregrass man was sentenced yesterday for sexually abusing a 16-year-old girl about a year ago.

Former Newville Councilman Leon "Lamar" Clements is charged with first degree sexual abuse and will serve time in jail.

He was sentenced to 60 days with no exceptions and after his time is served he will be on supervised probation for two years.

The victim's mother told News 4 that Clements was one of their family friends before the incident.
